Joy Is an Act of Resistance

While there is much to be feared, worried about, and fretted over at all times, creating intentional joy is a way we can make a continued and sustained effort in activism and our pursuits to create the better world we know is possible. This service will explore the wisdom of Audre Lorde (who coined the phrase in the title) and how it can be used personally for resilience and in praxis in resistance while fighting injustices.

Rev. Jami serves as a hospice chaplain in the Austin, TX, region, is a consultant and educator for trauma and trauma responses within the Southern Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and healthcare industry, and recently became the caretaker of a bonsai tree named Atticus.
